    I just finished this tote! What a CHALLENGE! It's called "Professional Tote" and to give credit that's required...the pattern is by The Creative Thimble. I wish i could get a good picture of the inside....it has a LARGE pocket in the center (like a file folder). There's a total of 3 zippers, 2 buttonholes and velcro!!! The two end pockets (you see the hanging ribbon?)...is perfect to carry bottles of water. I made it for a lifetime friend that's taking a trip of a lifetime to Norway in a few weeks. It'll be perfect for hauling "stuff" onto the plane! I have to admit - this has been the most challenging thing I've sewn in a long time....and I can't wait to do another one!

    Your choice of fabric is beautiful! I love the Professional Tote, I carry mine every day. The pockets and organizers are great. I know your friend will appreciate such a thoughtful gift, and it'll be a wonderful tote for a special trip.

    Thank you everyone!!! NOW -- LOL --- my mistake!!!! I just realized this morning that it was a LOT taller than it was supposed to be!! I forgot to fold down that 3" section on the top -- it was to be folded down inside...NOW it looks a lot better!!! LOL...

    Here's the "fixed" version:

    Great bag for a plane ride! Love the design and fabric.

    Blue - wicked has been a term in Maine (maybe all of New England) for a long time.
